Dansko shoes began with a uniquely designed and patented Danish clog, discovered by Dansko company founders Mandy Cabot and Peter Kjellerup, in a tiny shop in Denmark in the late 1980s. The husband and wife team, then professional horse trainers, flipped over their discovery of "the perfect barn shoe," and, quite literally, put them through two years of "acid-testing." Mandy and Peter found these shoes to be extraordinarily comfortable, durable, and attractive enough to wear almost anywhere. They were the only shoes they ever wore. Mandy and Peter secured the exclusive rights to the stapled clog product line from Denmark, and "Dansko, Inc." was up and running in 1991. Pairs were shared, new designs designed, new Dansko shoe collections developed, the good word spread, and within a few short years Dansko footwear was distributed in over 3500 retail locations-from tack shops to uniform shops, outdoor retailers to specialty boutiques.
